Kevin Harvick has three wins in the non-points Sprint Unlimited exhibition race – 2009, 2010 and 2013 – tying him for second-most with owner and teammate Tony Stewart and NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett.

In the 2009 Unlimited, Harvick survived an incident-filled race that saw a record eight caution periods and less than half the starting field make it to the checkered flag. The following year, he joined Neil Bonnett, Ken Schrader and Stewart as the fourth driver in event history to win consecutive races, and he did so driving a backup car he never got to practice, passing Greg Biffle with two laps remaining in a green-white-checkered finish. He was declared the winner when a multicar incident ended the race under caution. In his 2013 win, Harvick led 40 of 75 laps, dominating the second and third segments en route to his third Sprint Unlimited victory in five years.-TSC

Bubba Wallace, driver of the No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) Ford Mustang, looks at his second full-time NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) season as one of growth and maturity after a successful rookie campaign in 2015.

Saturday night's exhibition race at Daytona International Speedway will mark Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s third career start in the Sprint Unlimited.

Despite the damage to his Fastenal Ford that was obtained in a 14 car pile-up on lap 45 in last season's Sprint Unlimited, Stenhouse was working his way up through the field before cutting a tire sending him into the outside wall resulting in a 16th-place finish. The two-time XFINITY champion has 13 career starts at DIS. He has seven in Sprint Cup with an average finishing position of 19.9 and best career finish of seventh in the 2014 Daytona 500.-Roush Fenway Racing

Brian Vickers will drive the No. 14 if he is approved by NASCAR to return to the seat of a Cup car, according to NBC Sports’ Dustin Long. Vickers has missed much of the past several seasons as he battled blood clots.

Vickers is a solid driver and this team is capable of performing to the level of teammates Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch, but fantasy owners should be a little leery because there could be a little rust on the racer.

Jamie McMurray might be one of the best values in allocation management games, but only if he is picked on the right weekend, according to

McMurray sits just outside the top five or 10 drivers on several different track types so knowing when to start him could be key to setting a winning lineup. For more strategy tips, make certain to follow the weekly coverage.

For quite some time, Denny Hamlin was crash-prone on plate tracks, but he has been trending up in the last couple of years. Six of his 13 career top-10s on this track type have come in his last eight attempts. His one and only victory on this track type came at Talladega in May 2014.

Hamlin’s average finish during the past eight races has been a solid 10.0, which is considerably better than his career average of 18.68. Fantasy owners will want to ride that momentum.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has finished better than he started in all but two of his 12 starts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways. The two races in which he failed to finish better than he started both came at Daytona.

Stenhouse faded from 16th to 41st in the 2014 Coke Zero 400, but that was because he sustained crash damage. He also slipped two positions in the 2013 edition of that race after getting involved in a last-lap crash.
Feb 10 - 4:19 PM

Joey Logano has the 11th-best average finish among active, fulltime drivers on restrictor-plate, superspeedways—but he might be a slightly better value than that suggests. One of the drivers ranked above him is Tony Stewart, who will miss this year’s 500 due to an injury.

In addition, Logano won two of the four plate races last year with victories in the Daytona 500 and 500 last October. His salary cap might make him unattractive in those games, but he has a good shot in pick ‘em contests.

Front Row Motorsports will enter a third car for David Gilliland for the Daytona 500. This organization has two charters, which will currently be used for Chris Buescher and Landon Cassill, so Gilliland will have to race the No. 35 into the show.

The new charter system will create some interesting scenarios for young drivers and part time teams, but not as much as the reduction of the field from 43 to 40 cars. Currently the list for the 500 is at 42, which would have meant everyone was guaranteed to start in the past. If Gilliland makes the show, he has a solid restrictor-plate, superspeedway record and could be a great fantasy dark horse.

Tony Stewart will receive the same exemption from NASCAR’s rule that drivers must attempt the full season in order to be Chase eligible as Kyle Busch did last year, according to the Sporting News. He will miss an indeterminate number of races after injuring his back in an off-road accident in California.

Stewart is going to need to pick up his pace if he wants to earn enough points to be inside the top 30 or even win a race, so the exemption may be moot. As of now, Stewart cannot be considered a strong fantasy value.
Feb 10 - 12:23 PM

When NASCAR announced the 36 charters and reduction of race fields from 43 to 40 cars, it put Ryan Blaney is a situation he knows all-too-well: He must race his way into the Daytona 500 and qualify as one of four drivers to make the show on time each week during 2016.

NASCAR gave charters to team that have raced fulltime since 2013 and the Wood Bros. have run partial schedules since 2008. Michael Waltrip Racing’s charters will be purchased by Carl Edwards and Kurt Busch, while HScott Motorsports will lease a charter from Premium Motorsports this season for the No. 46 of Michael Annett, according the NBC’s Dustin Long. Blaney is capable of making every race, but fantasy owners will have to pay close attention each week to insure he qualifies.

Seven and 11 are considered lucky numbers in the dice game craps, but they have not elevated Brad Keselowski to the top 10 on either the top-five or top-10 lists. He sits just outside that mark in terms of number of front-of-pack results and has the 12th-best average finish of 19.36.

With two wins at Talladega SuperSpeedway. Keselowski has a much better average result there than Daytona International Speedway. His ‘Dega average is 14.8, while his Daytona average is 23.9.
Feb 10 - 11:24 AM

With an average finish that is barely inside the top 20, players might be inclined to believe Greg Biffle is not a very strong plate racer. That ranks him 13th among active, fulltime drivers however, and his 14th top-10s places him 10th on that chart.

NASCAR is about current achievements and five of Biffle’s last six attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways have been 20th or worse. Watch him, but only start him if he looks comfortable in the draft during prelims.
Feb 10 - 11:23 AM

Ryan Newman has earned 18 top-10s in his 56-race career on restrictor-plate, superspeedways, ranking him ninth on that chart between Clint Bowyer’s 21 and Greg Biffle’s 14.

Newman added two top-10s in the four plate races last year and came close to banking another in the fall ‘Dega duel. He finished 12th in the 500. His worst result came in the Daytona 500 with a crash-induced 38th.
Feb 10 - 11:22 AM

Martin Truex Jr. finished second in the 2015 Sprint Unlimited after leading a race high of 28 laps in the 75-lap non-points event at Daytona.

That was 27 more laps than he led the entire 2014 season, his first year with the single-car team based out of Denver, Colo. He went on to claim 14 top-10 finishes in the first 15 point races, a victory at the June Pocono race and a Chase march to the Championship 4 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He finished fourth in the final point standings, a vault of 20 positions from 2014. Truex will drive the No. 78 Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Toyota in the Sprint Unlimited. At all the other events at Daytona Speedweeks he will drive the No. 78 Bass Pro Shops/TRACKER Boats Toyota.-FRR
